Pinpointer of the future (NEW 2018). You’ll be finger searching!

This blog contains some posts about smart metal detectors of the future, and it’s definitely a good thing.

Fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT. Careful, it doesn’t work!

Here are the pics (+ what’s inside the fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT): Continue reading

In your opinion, will this pinpointer cost more or less than its donor? Continue reading
